Start your Staffordshire hot air ballooning adventure with Virgin Balloon Flights, with balloon flights over Stafford from our spectacular Amerton Railway launch site. Right next door to Amerton Farm and craft centre, rise above the county town and see Stafford from the sky on an experience of a lifetime. Staffordshire might be best known for its famous Potteries in the north but for us it's all about a wickers world of sky-high experiences across the county. With the right wind, you could find yourself drifting over beautiful Shugborough Hall, one of the finest manor houses in the Midlands, or if you fly towards Stafford itself instead, Stafford Castle could come into view. You may fly over Cannock Chase, a nearby Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, but whichever way the wind blows you’ll be sure to see Staffordshire’s beautiful landscapes from a whole new perspective, before toasting your hot air balloon voyage with a glass of Champagne after touch down. Cheers! [caption id="attachment_521" align="aligncenter" width="580"]Our pilot in his wonderful wickers world, flying high over Stafford. Hot air balloon over Stafford.

Explore the farm and pet its animals before a stroll round the grounds or perhaps a ride on ‘Isabel’, the Amerton Railway’s very own steam engine. Sit back and relax in the tea rooms or visit one of the many wonderful shops or craft centres to finish off a faultless balloon ride with Virgin Balloon Flights. What’s more, you’ll receive a personalised certificate endorsed by Sir Richard Branson and signed by your pilot . Balloon flights over Stafford and its surrounding counties start from as little as £117 per person. You can also read our latest blog on Stafford hot air balloon rides here.
